With an estimated 2,000 to 2,500 export manufacturers in the line, China is one of the worlds leading producers of leather bags and wallets, in both genuine and synthetic leather models. The country offers a range of suppliers, from small-scale specialists to high-volume makers, and the global markets lowest prices.

China produced US$17 billion worth of leather bags and wallets in 2003, and annual output could top 800 million pieces within three years.

This report covers makers that are producing handbags, shoulder bags, small travel bags, portfolios, backpacks and wallets in real leather and treated PU and PVC.

Womens handbags are the industrys strongest line, accounting for nearly 30 percent of production. Asia is the largest market for China-made womens handbags, absorbing 35 percent of suppliers exports in this line. North America and Western Europe purchase 29 percent and 24 percent, respectively. Eastern Europe accounts for only 5 percent at present but is seen as an emerging market for China handbags.

Our report examines what is driving the countrys export industry for genuine and synthetic leather bags and wallets. We provide an in-depth look at products made and prices offered, R&D and design trends, raw materials, production capability, the main manufacturing hubs, and projections for the year ahead — information that can help your company formulate its sourcing strategies.

The report includes in-depth profiles of 20 export manufacturers. These suppliers were selected to be featured companies because they are leading makers from the countrys main production hubs of Guangdong, Fujian, Zhejiang, Shanghai, Jiangsu, Hebei and Beijing. They offer lowend, midrange or high-end designs, and together represent a cross-section of the suppliers available in China.

There are also 57 short profiles for a broader look at the range of makers operating in China. A Product Gallery highlights the industrys latest design trends, including more compartments, brighter colors, azo-free models, bolder embroidery and embossing, and budget-conscious models with combined materials.

The report also analyzes the findings of our survey of 77 China suppliers, providing a forecast of pricing and production trends for coming months.

China suppliers are producing models in a range of leathers, including cowhide, sheepskin, pigskin, exotic materials such as crocodile and ostrich, and synthetic versions. While high-end leathers are mainly imported from Italy, China is virtually self-sufficient now in the supply of low-end and midrange leather materials.
